yes, in Lacrosse you are allowed to use hockey gloves but it is not advised for 6th grade and up for multiple reasons, as any player gets older the game has greater demands and one of the major demands is the ability to move ones hands and finders individually. That is the also key difference between hockey and lacrosse gloves. hockey gloves(unless you shell out 125-200$) have what is called a thumb lock and it prevents the thumb from bending backwards due to collisions with the multiple hard surfaces inside of a hockey rink, hockey gloves also limit the individual use of fingers, both of these features are compromises that hockey players make due to the limitless amount of hand injuries that can be sustained from playing Ice Hockey. The reason i would say to purchase a pair of lacrosse gloves is there ability to give individual movement for fingers and the palm is thinner along with breathable palm slits and a surfaces that do not cause as much friction between the glove and the stick. So if you are a beginning player it is perfectly okay to use them it is just that hockey gloves are not meant to let your hands move and they are not meant to take repeated slashes or checks.

Can you use girls lacrosse gloves for field hockey?

You can use girls lacrosse gloves as field hockey gloves, they are actually great to be used for outdoor field hockey. In indoor field hockey I would not recommend using them though, because they do not provide enough padding. In indoor you have to get low to the point where your hand is almost on the ground, leaving it exposed, also the ball moves much faster so getting hit does hurt more, so you want well padded gloves for indoor. There are indoor field hockey gloves made, normally they are made for the left hand only but you may want to get another one to protect the right hand as well.
